West Ham player ratings vs Manchester United: Michail Antonio thrives as Declan Rice dominates
West Ham finally, and definitively, moved away from Premier League relegation danger with a thoroughly deserved win over Manchester United.
The only goal of the game came through Said Benrahma and thanks to a huge error from David de Gea, but the result was entirely fair.
Here’s how David Moyes’s side rated at the London Stadium...
No spectacular saves but made all the simple ones, which was more than could be said for his opposite number.
Never fully convinces and too passive when Rashford cut inside to hit post.
Breezed through the game against the ineffective Weghorst.
Covering pace was vital as United tried to release Rashford early. An excellent showing.
Given a torrid time by Antony on the left flank but gradually got to grips with the Brazilian.
Tomas Soucek 7
One of three back from illness after missing the Man City defeat in midweek. Hit the outside of the post and had a goal disallowed, before sickening collision with Wan-Bissaka.
An unshowy outing on what is likely to be his penultimate League outing here, but still made a couple of chances with his runs into the box. The kind of presence the visitors were missing.
A couple of uncharacteristically poor passes blew early openings, and again on break late on, but found space between United lines well.
Not quite at his best but runs on the counter-attack stretched United and made space for others.
Another invaluable display, epitomised by brilliant run from inside his own half halted only by Wan-Bissaka’s slide. Return to form over the last two months has been terrific.
Said Benrahma 8
Scored a rather fortunate goal with help of De Gea’s clanger, then denied a stonewall penalty on half-time. Caused problems all evening.
